7nm procesorji Intel Xe s kodnim imenom 'Ponte Vecchio'



Intel's first Xe GPU built on the company's 7 nm silicon fabrication process will be codenamed 'Ponte Vecchio,' according to a VideoCardz report. These are not gaming GPUs, but rather compute accelerators designed for exascale computing, which leverage the company's CXL (Compute Express Link) interconnect that has bandwidth comparable to PCIe gen 4.0, but with scalability features slated to come out with future generations of PCIe. Intel is preparing its first enterprise compute platform featuring these accelerators codenamed 'Project Aurora,' in which the company will exert end-to-end control over not just the hardware stack, but also the software.

'Project Aurora' združuje do šest pospeševalnikov Ponte Vecchio 'Xe z do dvema večjedrnima procesorjema Xeon, ki temeljijo na 7 nm' Sapphire Rapids 'mikroarhitekturi, in OneAPI, združujoč API, ki omogoča eno samo vrsto strojne kode CPU in GPU. Če ima Intel strojno arhitekturo strojev x86, bo verjetno, da bodo grafični procesorji Xe med drugim imeli možnost obdelave x86 navodil. API bo lahko potiskal skalarne delovne obremenitve v CPU in skalarne enote GPU ter vektorske delovne obremenitve v vektorski optimizirane enote SIMD, ki jih optimizira GPU. Intelov glavni korak do računalskega trga bi lahko znatno znižali stroške programske opreme zaradi API-ja in poenotenja strojne kode med CPU-jem in GPU-jem. Vljudnost slik: Jan Drewes
